Hi Wayne! What I do: Join a free image hosting site. I belong to several truck forums, they seem to have the best icons. Right click on any icon you like. “Save as” to where you want to store said icon. Up load said icon to the image hosting site. Follow their instructions for posting to a forum.
I use Image Shack, so all I have to do is copy and paste the link back to Image shack on the forum I'm posting to. When you preview your post there is the icon.[URL=http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/526/thumbsuphc.gif/][/URL]
